Zentangle Birthday Cards

These are nice quality card stock and I decided to keep the 3.5" square size and I drew funky numbers first.

So the one on the left is my hubby's Aunt Cordelia who will be 98. Hopefully you can kind of find the 9-8 on the cover? I doubt she's ever seen one of these so I printed directions on the inside for finding the "hidden numbers".

Then our grandson will turn 11 next week too so there are two funky "ones" on the one on the tipped slightly. Both have some very lightly shaded color pencil added. I also hid his name and "happy birthday" in the design and inside the card I asked him to see if he could find them.

Sure is more personal and fun to get one of these than some $4.00 generic goofy Hallmark card. Just another thing to do with Zentangles!

I found an old wallpaper book at a garage sale on Friday and I am thinking I'll use it as a background for a Zentangle now too. Also a really cool find...a set of alphabet stamps (50 cents). These are going for big bucks on eBay!
